Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER by Mona Anderson, an omnibus volume comprising "the best of her popular earlier books, including 'A River Rules My Life', 'The Good Logs of Algidus', 'A Letter from James', 'Old Duke', 'Mary-Lou', and 'Home is the High Country'."

"BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER brings together the best of Mona Anderson's earlier books, then carries these stories forward to the Andersons' decision to leave the Mount Algidus station, their subsequent move to the small Canterbury town of Darfield, and their adjustment to down country life. She chose her own favourite episodes from earlier books and some of these stories will be familiar, although some are newly published. A remarkable series of best-selling books has now been brought fully up to date, offering a valuable retrospective of both the author's eventful life and New Zealand's country way of life. The resulting fresh perspective on Mona Anderson's remarkable life is enhanced by the beautiful illustrations of David Cowie.'
